Are you curious? 

•    How you can adapt computing devices to individual users? 
•    How you can think of entirely new approaches to the interaction between human and machine? 
•    What AI can learn from us and what we can learn from AI?

If you’re interested in questions like these, then the Human Computer Interaction Master’s programme at Utrecht University might be it for you! 

Combines information and computing sciences and psychology 

Computing is everywhere nowadays: from mobile phone apps and personal trackers to robots. All these devices must be adapted to individual users. This selective research Master’s programme combines the perspectives of Information and Computing Sciences and Psychology to do just that. 

Strong links to research

The programme gives a solid methodological and technological basis, with strong links to research. Your research will centre around the question: How can we best utilize technology in real-world settings? To find the answer, you will not only consider the effectivity and efficiency of systems; but, also AI and user experiences.  

You’ll work on three unique topics: 
•    Human-Centred Artificial Intelligence
•    Personalized, Empathic Computing
•    Persuasive Technology

You’ll test research theory in our three labs.
